Tribunal Fees

  • Posted

On 9th July 2013, the Court of Session refused to grant an interim interdict in the judicial review application brought by Fox & Partners against the introduction of tribunal fees.

The full judgment of Lord Bannatyne, setting out his reasons for refusing to grant the interim interdict, is now available. Paragraph 35 is interesting, setting out the government's figures about the expected income and costs of running the fees regime.

The full judicial review hearing is expected to be heard in October, as is the judicial review brought in England by Unison.
